Depending on your height, you’ll get a somewhat different perspective of the Yinka Shonibare dolls sitting on a wooden platform, part of the “Pivot Points: 15 Years & Counting” exhibit at MOCA, the huge group show celebrating the North Miami museum’s 15th birthday. If you are short, you’ll have to look up to see their […]

On Tuesday night, March 19, a little piece of Miami burned. It was a fantastic sight to behold. On the bay at Bicentennial Park, artist George Sanchez-Calderon held an American Falla, where he lit ablaze a reproduction of a model home from Levittown – the first planned suburbia in Pennsylvania. The model had been up […]

  Most of us remember a time when we were young, when a dense spot of vegetation tempted you to climb into it, explore it. It may have been a field of corn, a mossy mound in a park, a thicket of a forest, a hammock, a mangrove swamp. A great installation at Locust Projects […]

We like to mix our art with some parties; it goes a long way to explain why Art Basel Miami Beach is here. And Saturday night is no exception:  ArtCenter/South Florida (a multiple Knight Arts grant winner) is throwing its annual fundraiser and raffle, winningArt. What’s always great about this event is that it is so reasonably […]

Controversy has swirled around the Miami Art Museum’s name change, from MAM to PAMM when the brand new museum opens up on Biscayne Bay. Starting tomorrow night, we will all get a chance to see what caused that change, with the opening of “Frames of Reference: Latin American Art from the Jorge M. Perez Collection” […]

Photographing installations is an art form in itself. These aren’t portraits, not scenes or even re-enactments. Whereas photography can often be a medium to capture a moment, an emotion that other forums don’t offer, installation photography is by its essence staged, composed photos of a set that is still temporary and sometimes fundamentally artificial. And […]

It’s not hard to understand why La Virgen de la Caridad, Our Lady of Charity, is the patron saint of Cuba. As legend has it, a statue of her was found floating in the water by three men in a boat 400 years ago, after they had prayed to the virgin to help save them […]

In the drawings on Mylar that Felice Grodin creates, there is a lot of action. They can at first look like expanding, growing organisms. But on closer observation, these fairly large pieces, a number of which are up at the Diana Lowenstein Fine Art gallery, the movement suggests more a metropolis in motion – the […]

Catch up on some black art history

There are a number of shows and events associated with Black History Month around town. Although work from African Americans, Afro-Caribbeans and Africans show up on walls throughout the year here in Miami, it’s not with enough frequency as our diverse population would warrant. Maybe that can start to change. Over at University of Miami’s […]

For the second year in a row, the Deering Estate has taken a chance with an outdoor (and some indoor), site-specific sculpture, part of its Festival of the Arts. It’s well worth the jaunt down south. On opening night, the works were lit up, creating a glowing ambiance in the gorgeous grounds on the bay. […]
